“Great buffet”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

The Emperor does all you can eat for £18 and cooks the food fresh so it is not like a buffet where you have to help yourself to food that may have been under the hot lights a little longer than you'd like.

The food is consistently excellent and I've always found the service to be of a good standard. The only thing I'd point out is that the portion sizes of the main courses are a little on the small side but as you can order as much as you like this isn't really an issue. Fantastic.

“Miserable”
Reviewed 1 September 2013 via mobile

Took my daughter for her birthday last friday ...food okay and plenty of it...fast service..
But....when it came to a query on bill thats when the manager turned nasty ..we also overheard him moaning at another quest..not nice..
The under 12 policy for half price is wrong..its actually under 7..we only found out when bill came.
The board outside states under 12 so we paid FULL adult prices for a 9 year old..she only ate a bowl of noodles and 2 chicken pieces.
Probably wont go bsck..but would recommend as food nice.

They are the most miserable waiters and waitresses who are very rude and unfriendly ! I would reccomend the food for the value but evening ruined by the horrible staff who don't even speak to you.

“Just a Great Place to Eat”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

Fairly priced, well served and plenty of choice.

If you get to know them they even give you off menu dishes
